No unusual or problematic protest-related activity has occurred this week in Baltimore County.

"I want to assure citizens and local businesses that there is no need to curtail their daily business as a result of the ongoing unrest in Baltimore City," said Police Chief Jim Johnson. "We have experienced no unusual activity here, and there are no indications that anything unusual is planned."

Police continue to monitor social media and other sources for rumors about gatherings and other protest-related activity. The department is taking these messages seriously and has appropriate resources available for deployment, should the need for them occur. At this time, however, there are no credible threats to Baltimore County

"Our county is uneventful and safe. There is no need for businesses, schools and other institutions to disrupt normal operations," Chief Johnson said.

Continued Support for BPD

BCoPD continues to support the Baltimore City Police Department. This afternoon, BCoPD sent about 50 officers back to Baltimore to assist with protests. The same number of county officers was deployed Monday and Tuesday.

Since last weekend, BCoPD has provided backup Tactical, K-9 and Aviation support for BPD's daily calls for service. In addition, Baltimore County Police are handling duties normally handled by the Maryland State Police in Baltimore County.

The Baltimore County Fire Department also has provided support for fire suppression and medical service since last weekend, especially during the evening hours, when demand has been highest.

The 35th Baltimore County Police Foundation Awards ceremony honored officers who performed exceptionally over the past year.

The ceremony was held April 22 at the Baltimore Hunt Valley Inn. Master of Ceremonies Stan Stovall hosted the event.

Winners of the Foundation awards -- the most prestigious award available to Baltimore County Police -- include a Pikesville officer who risked his life stopping a violent suspect, a Cockeysville officer who thwarted a school shooting and the Special Victims Unit for its work clearing old sexual assault cases. A complete list of winners and a description of their accomplishments is available on the Baltimore County Police Foundation web site.

The Foundation is a private, business-sponsored, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of police service in the County, and strengthening the relationship between police and the business community.

The Baltimore County Police Department celebrates National Volunteer Appreciation Week with a dinner for volunteers on April 16. The event will take place at the Baltimore Yacht Club, 800 Baltimore Yacht Club Road, Essex, 21221. The evening will begin with dinner and awards at 6 p.m.

Volunteers answer phones, handle clerical work and assist with statistical data, among other duties. Their participation allows officers to focus on patrol and investigation.

Expected to attend the dinner are more than 80 volunteers and members of the Police Auxiliary Team, as well as Chief James Johnson.

National Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 12-18.
